    My niece is winning the battle of breast cancer, I will continue to do as much fund raising for Susan G. Komen as I possibly can. This is my second year doing ZUMBA for RACE FOR THE CURE, I will be back again and again as long as I can. I am 70 years old and enjoyed dancing with Jamie Bruno, she is a great singer and has a great personality. I wish her the best of luck, and I hope she is very successful in her career. The vendors had some very good stuff, and they were very pleasant. Hats off to all of the workers who put this together again, and especially the volunteers, that is what makes the real difference. I hope someday all cancers will be cured, I am a 66 year survivor of eye cancer. My Mother put my life in GOD’S hands, along with the doctors and nurses. I thank GOD everyday that I have been given, it was a great day, and the Pirates won what more could you ask for. NEVER GIVE UP
